Rose Planting: In Container

1. Pick a Pot with Drainage​

Choose a container two sizes larger than the size pot the plant was currently in to give it room to grow. Select a pot with drainage or drill holes in the base to allow water to flow out.

2. Add Potting Soil​

Place multiple scoops of potting soil into your container.

3. Add Rose to Container​

Remove the rose from its container. Use your hands to gently loosen the roots at the bottom of the plant. Place in your container, ensuring that the base of the plant is straight.

4. Fill in Soil around Plant​

Add soil around plant, leaving only 1½ inches at the top of the container.

5. Place in a Sunny Spot​

You rose will need at least 6-8 hours of sun each day, so choose a sunny spot to place your container.

6. Water Your Rose​

Water your rose thoroughly around the base of the plant, allowing it to soak in. Repeat twice weekly or as necessary. Plants in containers tend to dry out more easily than plants in-ground, so be sure to check your plant frequently. You’ll want to keep it moist, not allowing it to dry out.
